Winnie-The-Pooh by A.A. Milne

Summary:  Although I thought I was somewhat familiar with the character Winnie-the-Pooh, I have gained a new appreciation for the stories that make Pooh Bear a classic figure by reading A.A. Milne’s Winnie-The-Pooh.  As usual, this book really is better than the movies.  I really appreciated the introduction explaining that these stories are simply events that occurred only within the imagination of a small boy who loved his stuffed animals very much.  Each chapter could be a stand-alone story, but they do build on each other to develop the characters.  While the storylines are somewhat preposterous, I could easily envision my children imagining these tales about their beloved loveys.

Pros: Amazing opportunities for discussing new vocabulary words, character flaws and strengths, and using one’s imagination.

Cons: Illustrations are small, black and white line drawings which are difficult to decipher at best and impossible for those with visual impairments to enjoy.

Age Range: 4-10
